  1. pmc A presynaptic endosomal trafficking pathway controls synaptic growth signaling
    Avital A Rodal
    Department of Biology, The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, MA 02139, USA
    J Cell Biol 193:201-17. 2011
    ..Our results define a presynaptic trafficking pathway mediated by SNX16, NWK, and the ESCRT complex that functions to control synaptic growth signaling at the interface between endosomal compartments...
  2. pmc Nervous wreck and Cdc42 cooperate to regulate endocytic actin assembly during synaptic growth
    Avital A Rodal
    The Picower Institute for Learning and Memory, Department of Biology, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, Massachusetts 02139, USA
    J Neurosci 28:8316-25. 2008
    ..Together, our results suggest that synaptic growth activated by growth factor signaling is controlled at an endosomal compartment via coordinated Nwk and Cdc42-dependent actin assembly...

    Department of Biology, Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center, Brandeis University, Waltham, Massachusetts 02454, USA
    Nat Struct Mol Biol 12:26-31. 2005
    ..We conclude that WASp stabilizes p35-dependent closure of the complex, holding Arp2 and Arp3 closer together to nucleate an actin filament...
  4. pmc Formation of membrane ridges and scallops by the F-BAR protein Nervous Wreck
    Agata N Becalska
    Rosenstiel Basic Medical Sciences Research Center, Department of Biology, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA 02454, USA
    Mol Biol Cell 24:2406-18. 2013
    ..These findings expand the repertoire of F-BAR domain mediated membrane deformation and suggest that unique modes of higher-order assembly can define how these proteins sculpt the membrane. ..
  5. pmc Structural and functional dissection of the Abp1 ADFH actin-binding domain reveals versatile in vivo adapter functions
    Omar Quintero-Monzon
    Department of Biology and Rosenstiel Basic Medical Science Research Center, Brandeis University, Waltham, MA 02454, USA
    Mol Biol Cell 16:3128-39. 2005
    ..Together, our data provide the first structural and functional view of the Abp1-actin interaction and show that Abp1 has distinct cellular roles as an adapter, linking different sets of ligands for each function...
